PT400 Installation and Preventative Maintenance

Petrotag team installs and calibrates the system. We work in partnership with electricians on the rough in of the site.

The PT 400 Nitrogen Bottle is monitored by software that alerts the site maintainer when refills are required. A typical site will need a refill of nitrogen every 3-6 months depending on the sample rate.

After the initial install, preventative maintenance visits are recommended to begin around the 5th year and every 2 years there after.  This sustains the long 15+ year lifespan of the system.
